Dear Brothers and Sisters:

 

We greet you with good news for God’s children! Our Creator, Sustainer, Provider, Healer, and Judge is the embodiment of love! Nothing can separate us from the love of God. He loved us even when we were living in full rebellion against His loving kindness. His love for us is characterized by patience, kindness, long-suffering, unselfishness, meekness, forgiveness, faithfulness and truthfulness. His love for us never fails. Our Heavenly Father has made some magnificent promises to us for loving Him. All things work together for good to those who love Him. If we love Him, we will keep His commandments and the Father will love us (on top of His love already poured out) and He and the Son will come to us and make Their home in our hearts! Let us ask ourselves, "Why not love God?"

 

Every now and then we want to review for our friends the free resources we make available for ministry to the elderly and infirm, especially those who live in a long-term care setting. The following is a partial list of these materials:

Worship Service Programs Each one comprised of a handout set up like a "church bulletin" with a poem, responsive reading, and "order of service" including songs taken from our hymn booklet, Favorite Hymns of Grace. These are selected to compliment the theme of a short sermonette provided with the handout.
